Recovery Action - DUNS 078576738. This modification is issued to obligate American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) of 2009 funds to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for the purpose of providing $130,000 in operating funds to collaborate with the Tri-Carb Consortium and the research team. LBNL geochemists will conduct numerical model simulations of the interactions of C)2 with reservoir rock and brine to estimate these chemical interactions associated with the transport and fate of CO2 in the deep subsurface. This work will contribute to a preliminary assessment of the suitability of this geologic region for CO2 storage.
The contract was competitively awarded. Contract is a cost reimbursement type because of the nature of the research mission makes the estimation of cost of performance impractical.
